WEDNESDAY, ,TUWB 10,I9M BLTTHfTtLLl (XMC.)' OOTRTBR PAQB BLBTBN Assignment: Littlt Ltagut Stallings Has Spirit ToGo With Ability »T J. P. FRIEND Most youngsters breaking into baseball, and many who , have been in the diamond game for years, even professionally, have a burning desire to pitch. There is something fascinating about trying to shove that ball past the hitter. But Don Stallings, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Stall- jngs, is quite the exception to that rule. Don is the regular pitcher for the Kiwanis Club, and hulled a sensational thrte- hit, 4-1 victory over the Jaycees last Wednesday, his first : time ever to hurl a baseball game. And while admittedly the experience was exciting, Don says .he had rather play shortstop. • The 70-pound righthander »lth » touch in life, knows that farming Is pretty food whip for * youngster only 12, could offer no particular reason for his choice, except that he played that position all last year for the Yirbro Coop to the M!d(«t Leafue and liked it. Don is rather firm on his decisions; is reluctant to go off the deep end on the spur of the moment. For instance, he isn't too sure he wants to go into baseball professionally. He and his dad are pals and there is much in favor on the farm, the kind o( work Wesley l! doing He says he isn't looking for a soft Wildlife Boss Just Cant i5/joof Deer SEATTLE — John I/. Parley, .^he new director of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has never had the heart to shoot a deer. His first love is trout fishing and he likes to hunt duck and quail, i but has never drawn a bead on a I deer. But he can shoot a rifle—he i once was a member of the Camp j Perry rifle team while with the : California National Guard. i Parley will move into his new l job June 1. He Is employed now by ' a paper company (Crown Zeller- £ach Corp.) here but is experienced in game administration. He served five years as an executive officer of the California Game Department some two decades ago. j The paper company employed him originally to study the pollution problem in oyster beds near its Hood Canal (Wash.) pulp mill. He was called Into service in 1940 as a member of the California National" Gulird and assigned the chore of locating sites for radar and anti-aircraft installations In Alaska. Farley combed i the territory by foot, plane and boat and says he fell in love with "those marvelous rivsrs and bays and mountains and V3l!ej'S." Alaska's fishing and hunting problems will be part of his job a:, FWS director. 'He said he was "humble at the honor, delighted with the privilege to serve" as chief of the Pish and Wildlife Service. no Irish picnic. Then, too. he says he has an idea that professional baseball isn't the peaches and cream setup so often cracked up to be. Don is going to let that big decision rest for a few years and when the time comes to make a choice It will be soon enough. The youth makes a lot of good sense. Take It from Sonny Stiles, former Chick star basketballer, Don stands a good chance to so places in the cage sport. Sonny coached him one year at Yarbro and described hjm as one of the most promising basketball players for his age he had ever seen. Don, serving as captain and forward for the Yarbro quintet, set a blistering pace in effort, training and spirit. Sonny not only was high on young Stalllng's ability and potential as a cage star, but liked his attitude towards coaching and instruction. "He is a great little competitor, plays hard all the time, likes to win and is willing to forego any personal glory in order to finish out in front. He is one kid you don't have to worry about. He is always there, on time, and ready to go." John McDowell and the Rev. James Rainwater, Kiwanis coaches, chose Don because they needed a pitcher. If they switch him to shortstop, or anywhere else, including behind the plate it will be all right with him. "So long as I can play, it doesn't matter where," is Don Stailings baseball and sport philosophy. For a | kid of 12 it's a pretty good one, too.'

The British won this edition of an international series, 4-3, before an overflow cnnVd of 24,000, with several thousand turned away. (NBA) Hogan's Back Okay, But Spirit Dampened by Soaring Score OAKMONT, Pa. (AP) — Ben Hogan's back is okay, but his spirit isn't. And unless the latter mends as quickly as the former, the wiry little guy who was almost everybody's choice ;o win the U. S. Golf Association's 53rd Open championship—for the fourth I i m fc—may aave trouble qualifying for the main event which starts tomorrow. PGA Will Hold Driving Contest Again This Year BIRMINGHAM, Mich.—The National PGA Tournament, July 1-7. at Birmingham Country Club, will again feature a driving contest. It will be held on the final practice day, June 30, with the longest hitters in professional golf swinging! from their heels for cash awards I and medals. j The driving championships—for j accuracy and distance—were inaugurated a year ago at Big Spring Golf Club, Louisville, Ky. Max Evans of Detroit wo nthat accuracy test with three hits that averaged Hogan, who won three of the last four Open championships in which he played, was worried about his back when he left the 18th green at the Oakmont Country Club yesterday. t He had just shot a 17, five over par for the trying 6,916-yard course. As It turned out that was 11 strokes behind Chick Harbert's- briUiant round at the Pittsburgh Field Club which saved the first day of qualifying play from mediocrity. Hogan underwent osteopathic treatment last night and later reported that two vertebrae which had slipped slightly out of line had been restored to their places. "I feel fine now and I'll be all right," he naid. Three Bsal Par Gary Middlecolfs 35-33—69 was the day's best round at the big Oak- 312 yards. 10 inches. Harold Williams, the big pro from Tuscaloosa, Ala., copped the distance test with a drive of 329 yards. The distance each drive travels is measured" down to the inches. Each pro-gets three swings. To" be eligible in 'the accuracy event, a competitor must keep all three balls within a zone of 50 yards wide. There is much move leeway in the distance test. The longest ball in a zone 100 yards wide de- cidss the competition. Lawson LitWe was runner-up to Evans in the accuracy division. Ed (Porky) Oliver was the number two man in the distance group. n&irane L. 0.

Attacking part of the NCA policy as "vague, confusing and open to many interpretations," the presidents officially have demanded that the association "immediately suspend Us proposed enforcement machinery." This enforcement power against violators consists of academic blacklisting and is considered by some high-level authorities as too drastic. The NCA threatened Oklahoma A&M with disaccredltatlon three months ago for alleged athletic malpractices. The school in the meantime has submitted evidence intended to show it now is in conformity. The case is docketed for disposal by the NCA board of review this week end. Six Conferences Represented The presidents represent schools in the Big Ten. Big Seven, Mis- ;ouri Valley. Skyline, Southwest and Border Conferences. They have indicated that the huge accrediting agency, with membership in 19 states, is not needed to police athletics and is not equipped to do so. "Moderation Is sought to fit the needs and interests of the universities," a high source said. "As it w stands, high schools and smaller colleges can dictate the standards of larger universities." The NCA is made up of 3,000 educational institutions, of which 368 are colleges and universities and the remainder secondary schools. Large universities are in the minority. No Chicago White Sox player ever won the American League home run hitting championship. dlecof fshot a 64 to establish a new mark. Demaret and Mangrum both shot a pair of 65's.
